Look with Wonder & the Innocence of a Child

“Turn back, then, toward your creations.  If there is anything uncomfortable about your past, turn back to it, examine it, feel it.  Look at all the patterns that made it come up.  Look at the choices you have made that, perhaps now, you are embarrassed about.  But look not upon them with judgment.  Look with curiosity.  Learn to look with wonder and the innocence of a child. . . .”  (“The Way of Transformation,” The Way of Mastery, Chapter 17, Page 216)

This use of the word “creations” means, I think, all that we have succeeded in bringing about in our lives.  For we have done it, though many of us find this hard to believe.   It is true, of course, that we have been our own worst enemies.  But this can change.  We can start creating anew, and in the new creation, we will be blessed beyond description.

When we look back, we are reassessing what has gone before, and then choosing to make a new start.  As this quotation says, we don’t look back in judgment.  We look warmly on what has transpired.  We welcome it all, for it got us to where we are today—all that is good, all that is something we regret.  ALL is a blessing, just all, though it is rare when we see this truth in our daily lives.

When we are in a low mood, everything looks dismal, and we are primed to rest in judgment of what we have created.  But when our mood lifts, everything looks better, much better.  We can even get a glimpse of infinity, God acting in our lives.

We don’t have to wait long.  If reading this finds us in a low mood, let us quieten down and invite guidance for a more exalted attitude.  If we are happy, then we have what we want.

Strive to be happy today.

Wonder

“Here, in our time of bringing the miracle to mystery, we come as the feminine, bearing the way of Mirari—the way of wonder.”  Mirari

“Mirari” means “wonder,” and in this newly received book from Mary of Nazareth, Mari Perron talk intimately with her and shares Mary’s revelations.  We are entering a time when the feminine face of God will be more evident.  His two faces, the masculine and the feminine, will join together to assist us in creating a new world.

We often want to explain away every miracle.  This is just not possible, and it is to our benefit that it is not.  Wonder is a legitimate way to interact with the world.  Keeping the mystery alive is good for the soul.

When we are skeptics, we don’t see miracles.  They are just not there for us.  But when we open the mind and heart, our understanding deepens, and we don’t cast aspersions on what we are viewing that we don’t understand.

Let us open our mind and heart today to let God speak to us in mystery.  Let Him have His way with us.  Even seek to let Mary talk to us.
